While we tend to question anything that mysteriously show up in our InBox claiming to be from any highly-anticipated upcoming movie, we’re particularly suspicious when it comes to Michael Bay’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. After all, wasn’t Michael Bay boasting earlier this year that he planned on leaking false information to throw the fans off for what to expect in the sequel?
The four pictures that popped up certainly look like concept art for the toy designs and box depicting the new transformed version of Megatron that might appear in Michael Bay’s sequel, but are they the real deal? Or are these a part of Michael Bay’s campaign of misinformation?
When the same pictures started showing up on Transformers World 2005 and Latino Review and all over our message boards, we started wondering if these pictures might actually be legitimate.
You can check out the pictures in all their glory at one of the links above and decide for yourself.
UPDATE: The Hasbro Licensing Summit 2008 has confirmed that those images are indeed the new transformed version of Megatron a/p Transformers World. Their report from the summit also confirms that the Chevy Corvette is the disguised form of Sideswipe and that Devastator and Ravage will be appearing in the sequel.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens on June 26, 2009.
